What is "Jacquard" - Definition & Explanation

Woven fabrics manufactured by a loom with individual control of each of the warp yarns. Fabrics of almost any type or complexity can be made. Brocade and damask are types of jacquard woven fabrics.
Woven fabrics manufactured by using the Jacquard attachment on the loom. This attachment provides intricate versatility in designs and permits individual control of each of the warp yarns. Thus, fabrics of almost any type or complexity can be made. Brocade and damask are types of jacquard woven fabrics.
A system of weaving which, because of a pattern-making mechanism of great versatility, permits the production of woven designs of considerable size. The Jacquard loom, derivation of the old draw boy hand loom, was credited to Joseph Marie Jacquard in France in the early 19th Century. On the Jacquard loom, because the threads are handled individually, anywhere from 100 to 15,000 threads may have independent weave action, allowing for complicated curvilinear designs.
Woven fabrics manufactured by using the Jacquard attachment on the loom. This attachment provides versatility in designs and permits individual control of each of the warp yarns. Thus, fabrics of almost any type or complexity can be made. Brocade and damask are types of jacquard woven fabrics. The loom produces elaborate cloth weaves such as tapestries, brocades, and damask fabrics.
A fabric with a complicated pattern woven or knit into it as part of its structure. For wovens a jacquard loom is used which controls each warp yarn separately, raising or lowering it as needed during weaving to create the design. For knits a jacquard knitting machine creates the design by controlling whether individual needles knit, tuck, or miss.
Woven-in pattern created by a special loom. A raised design or pattern woven into the fabric as opposed to being printed on the fabric.
A system of weaving which, because of a pattern-making mechanism of great versatility, permits the production of very ornate, complex woven designs. This type of weaving is used for tapestry, figured necktie and dress fabric, and figured patterns on knit goods (sweaters).
A method for producing elaborately patterned weaves on a mechanical loom. It is named for the Frenchman who invented a loom which operates somewhat like the roller on a player piano. But instead of notes, it gives instructions to the machine on how to create the design.
A weaving machine to produce intricate woven design by controlling eachwarp yarn.
An intricately woven designs produced on a machine by controlling wrap yarn.
A fabric of intricate variegated weave or pattern
In terms of weaving this is a mechanism which when attached to a loom gives control over the selection of the warp threads thereby enabling complex patterns to be produced. Associated with punched cards used for patterning.
Woven fabrics manufactured by using the Jacquard attachment on the loom. This attachment provides versatility in designs and permits individual control of each of the warp yarns. Thus, fabrics of almost any type or complexity can be made. Brocade and damask are types of jacquard woven fabrics.
A raised design or pattern woven into a fabric as opposed to being printed on the fabric.
Any fabric that has a pattern woven into the fabric rather than printed on it. The name comes from Joseph Marie Jacquard who designed a loom attachment capable of weaving patterns into fabric.
